Today has been a slow day and deservedly so for us. We did some grocery shopping and then were talking about getting some produce that you can only get so often, green tomatoes. Most of the time when you go to a roadside stand, you cannot find any green ones, just the good red tomatoes. Kathy likes fried green tomatoes so I had suggested that she go on Freecycle and ask other members if they had any for her. We got a nibble, but no bite, so I called Bender's Farm Market, in nearby Copley, Ohio. They told me that they do sell green tomatoes, so I decided that we would go there and get some.
Great thing about going to farm markets this time of year is you can get some good deals and also some produce that is just ripe enough. And if you like your fruits and veggies, you never leave with just what went there for. They also had some very sizable cantaloupes for 99 cents, and to our daughter's delight, half runner green beans. We also got a small basket of ripe(as opposed to rock hard) peaches. And we did get our green tomatoes, which we fried up for supper tonight.
What we need to do before summer's end is to go to Amish Country and check out some of their produce, and hope we can get some more green tomatoes.
Now I have to go eat some cantaloupe.
